why isn`t soccer popular in U.S
I was watching ESPN sportscenter one evening and I was surprised to hear that David Beckham , one of the world ‘s best soccer players , was going to play in the United States for a national soccer team .

My initial research into this matter and the interviews that I have conducted as well as my background of having been exposed to the more underprivileged has shown me that in all strata of society it is important that there be a healthy balance of sports and group activities for the proper development of the youth . It seems that soccer is able to provide all of these needs . It is interesting therefore why soccer is not more popular than it is when it is clearly able to address a lot of issue concerning the development of today ‘s youth as well as able to create another dimension or area where the United States can excel in and bring pride to their people
